The oil filter housing has a big O-ring. You can re-use it once or twice but eventually it will leak. Change that O-ring with a new one and that should do it. Also if you have an external oil cooler check the lines for leaks.

those plastic filter caps crack also, cheap enough and you get a filter with it, Ac delco.
